Earlier this month the Senate passed the bipartisan infrastructure bill (HR 3684, as amended). The bill contains robust investments in our nation’s coastal infrastructure that are critical for addressing resilience and coastal hazards. This includes $77 million for National Estuarine Research Reserves to implement coastal habitat restoration projects to provide ecosystem and community resilience benefits under the Coastal Zone Management Act and the Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program. Additionally, the bill contains numerous coastal resilience community investments (see summary of bill here).

Stay tuned for updates on the Senate’s appropriations work. NERRA will need your help in pushing for funding support for the NERRS. Thank you for all that you do!
